Dancing Alone To Pony is a YouTube video fad where people record themselves dancing seductively to American R&B singer Ginuwine’s song “Pony.”
“Pony” was the first single released by Ginuwine on August 20, 1996. The song features a start-stop rhythm, popular in drum and bass music, with blatantly sexual lyrics. In November 2006, the song spent two weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip Hop Singles chart and reached #6 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The first person to record themselves dancing alone to the song was YouTuber jaystepss, who uploaded his video on May 2nd, 2006. The video went largely unnoticed with only 16,000 views as of January 2012.
There is a Facebook page dedicated to the series with over 100 likes and Tumblr hashtag “Dancing Alone to Pony” remains active in usage to this day.
In March 2010, 25-year-old Californian blogger Alex Martinez launched the single-topic blog Dancing Alone To Pony, curating a series of notable instances from YouTube. In June 2010, the blog was featured on L Magazine, the Frisky, My FOX DC, the Huffington Post, and Urlesque.
A supercut of the highlights from the blog, compiled by comedian Jim Tews, was uploaded to YouTube on January 31st, 2011. That February, the supercut video was featured on NY Magazine’s Vulture, the Hairpin, and Buzzfeed.
Search for Dancing Alone to Pony began in June 2010 when media outlets began picking up on the single topic blog. It has since dropped off.
